Abstract:

A carbon black-reinforced polyethylene containing 9 parts of Sb2O3 and 5 parts of polyvinyl chloride retained 92 of its room temperature tensile strength and 83 of its elongation after being aged 4 days at 450 F. in air. A carbon black-reinforced polyethylene containing 5 parts of both Sb2O3 and polyvinyl chloride and cured by electron irradiation retained 73 of its 450 F. tensile strength and 55 of its elongation after being aged at 450 F. for 3 days in air. Both ethylene propylene copolymer and Butyl 035 can be protected against the effects of air aging at 350 F. by employing Sb2O3 and Hypalon 40 in the stocks. Author
